i love rich dumb kids as of today. this kid at my school called me and asked if i could "work" on his truck. i told him that i barely know anything about engines so i'm not his best choice. well he said that it was just some cosmetic exterior stuff that needed to be "installed" and he'd pay me $50, this got my attention so i told him to bring it on over to my house. when he got to my house, all he wanted done was a grill insert and running boards. "50 dollars!, for that?!" i exclaimed. i guess he thought that i wanted more money or something for such a hard time consuming job :toothless ,so he upped it to $75. i told him that it would take a while and to come back in 3 hours. well i am now 75$ richer for about an hour of work and this kid's none the wiser. i told him that he could bring his truck over to my house anytime for "installations" :goodfinge i love rich dumb kids.

HAHAHA, you shoulda asked when he was getting some clear corners and altezza rears so he could be cool like the rest of the guys, and told him that after he buys them you will install them for 75 bucks, that is what i would do

Well we cant know everything about everything. I know im really stupid when it comes to trucks still, but im learning.It probably would have been a nice thing to let him stay over and watch you put it in so he could be more knowledgable.

That's how EVERY kid aroung here is. That's how I make a bunch of side cash. For Example-600 to put gears in a Jeep Wrangler-I've had two of them so far. 800 to put a 180 dollar alternator in too :) They have so much money it's sick

:stupid
First off, not everyone knows how to work on their rig.
Just think how much a shop would have charged him.
You probally saved him money and he's laughin at you and
callin you a sap for doin it so cheap.

Secondly, I don't think it's wise to rip the kid off teach him nothing.
I don't see a problem with taking his money for your services, shit, I
charge my friends for work that I do on their rigs, but I would have kept
him around to teach him something.

Hopefully the kid gets some tools for his B-day.

north Phoenix/snobsdale AZ = really rich people with no knowhow whatsoever. i actually made some cash around my neighborhood by taking down peoples x-mas lights. i don't know if they just wanted to give a kid in need of cash a little help, or are just super lazy. anyways, there are a lot of stupid people with more dollars than sense, taking advantage of them is what ur supposed to do.
